duquesne bridge

The Manchester Bridge in Pittsburgh.  It opened in 1915 and was the second bridge that connected the Point with the North Side of Pittsburgh. It replaced the wooden, covered Union Bridge (1874-1907). The Manchester Bridge was in use until 1969 (when it was replaced by the Fort Duquesne Bridge) and was demolished in 1970 as one of the final acts in the completion of the Point State Park project.  Undated photo, and caption info, from Jackson-Township Historical Preservation.
